Crowns, or caps as they are also known, restore teeth back to their natural shape when there is not enough tooth available to restore with a filling. They sit over the existing tooth and root, and bring the tooth back to its natural shape and function.

Why would we need a crown?

To strengthen teeth which have been heavily filled or root treated and are more prone to fracturing, or to restore aesthetics and function.

Old crowns can be replaced with more cosmetic, modern materials if appropriate.

They are colour matched to your natural teeth, so that they look natural, and blend with your own dentition.

What are they made of?

Crowns can be made form a variety of materials, and we recommend they are made in accordance with the function or aesthetic need in each patient.

Crowns can be metal-ceramic, all porcelain, or gold depending on where they are required and the aesthetic result you want.
